Call for Papers: 18. Studientag zum Englischen Mittelalter SEM XVIII
The University of Bonn is pleased to announce the 18. Studientag zum Englischen Mittelalter (SEM XVIII) to be held in Bonn from March 3, 2016 to March 5, 2016.
The SEM offers PhD students, postdocs, and advanced MA and Lehramt students working in the field of English Medieval Studies the opportunity to present their research to peers and advanced scholars. Following the tradition of previous SEM meetings, we invite abstracts on any topic related to the English Middle Ages. We warmly encourage submissions from junior scholars working in history, religious studies, art history as well as in literature and linguistics. Papers of fifteen pages maximum will be made available to all participants to be read before the conference and will be presented individually by senior scholars, who will summarize them and provide critical feedback and questions for the plenary discussion. Younger scholars can thus benefit from the expertise of senior scholars and from having their projects discussed in a friendly atmosphere.
In order to facilitate networking and scholarly exchange, we have planned a number of ancillary events, starting with a reception on the evening of Thursday, March 3, and ending with an optional trip to the twelfth-century Doppelkirche Schwarzrheindorf on Saturday, March 5.
We look forward to welcoming you in Bonn next spring!
